    So what is the name (name of the folder) of another theme you installed?

    In almost every case, the permissions on the my-templates of the actual template folder are wrong. Double check those. If not that, be sure the themes are not nested inside other folders. Should be like this:

    bb-config.php
    ----my-templates/
    customtheme-one/
    customtheme-two/

    Not:

    bb-config.php
    ----my-templates/
    customtheme-one/
    theme-folder/
    customtheme-two/
    theme-folder/

    The folders are indeed nested right and the permissions are proper.

    So what happens when you try to use another theme? You never said. Do they show up under Appearance? Can you activate them? Do you get an error?

    I also asked for the folder name of another theme, to see if those files can be pulled up by URL. So, what is the name of another theme you installed, and what folder is it in?

    Sorry about that, the themes dont even appear, and the folders are:

    root: /bbPress/my-templates/crazydark

    root: /bbPress/my-templates/static-blue

    I hope this helps.

    The files are not where bbPress expected to see them. If they were, this would come up fine:

    http://lookwhatwecando.freehostingcloud.com/my-templates/static-blue/style.css

    So, please take a screenshot of the location of the folders in relationship to the bb-templates folder.

    It could also be something weird related to the free hosting account, but I don’t think so. I just don’t think the files are where they need to be.

    Something like this:

    Here`s a screenshot:

    Please let me know if you need more.

    That’s good. Can you create 3 more? Same thing for these 3 directories:

    / (the site root)

    /bbPress/

    /bbPress/my-templates/

    How does http://lookwhatwecando.freehostingcloud.com/ use the files that are in bbPress? Is that a setting in the control panel to set the destination for the domain to that folder?

    Did you install this with SimpleScripts? I wonder if so and if that did anything weird upon installation.

    Here are the three screenshots:

    Im not sure how it uses the files there is this preference menu if that helps:

    I used the installer that came with bbpress if that helps.

    So what is in the html directory?

    And how does the web server know to show bbPress when accessing your domain?

    It’s almost like the web server is serving the files from another directory since everything in this bbPress directory looks OK. I’m curious what’s in the html directory and also where is the setting that tells the server what directory to serve files from.

    We can do a quick test by placing a file in the html directory and one in the bbPress directory (or just one or the other) then calling it up by name. Please post a screenshot of the html directory same as you’ve done for the others so far.

    The date is one day before the others which make me think something happened in there at some point. Maybe an earlier installation or maybe that’s just when the account was set up.

    I feel like an idiot, but I fixed it.

    Its reading the files for bbpress out of the html folder, I moved the proper files and everthing is working now.

    Sorry to have wasted your time with my idiocy.

    No problem – glad you got it sorted.
